Photochemistry and Spectroscopy Department

Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences


The following experimental techniques/instruments are available:

- electronic absorption: Shimadzu UV 3100 and 2700 spectrophotometers

- circular and magnetic circular dichroism: JASCO J-1500, OLIS DSM 17 CD spectropolarimeters

- luminescence: Edinburgh FL 900, Fluorolog-3, homebuilt Jasny mutifunctional and compact spectrofluorimeters

- time-resolved absorption and emission in the nano-, pico-, and femtosecond range

- single molecule measurements: homebuilt optical microscope, Renishaw InVia microscope

- IR spectroscopy: Bruker Vertex V70, Nicolet Magna 560

- Raman and SERS: Renishaw InVia Raman microscope

- matrix isolation

- supersonic jet UV/VIS/IR spectroscopies with fluorescence and mass spec detection


Many unique homebuilt instruments have been constructed over the years, designed mainly by dr Jan Jasny

Instruments for ultrafast time-resolved electronic, Raman, and IR spectroscopy are being designed and built at the Laser Centre
